Hello, my Sister just brought a Samsung SL 720 (
and its great i love it, pictures are crisp and awesome. Videos are sharp and sweet.
But only problem is when i view the video on the camera it's great. while if i watch it on the Computer, the video freezes every couple of seconds (but audio is fine)

i was wondering what could be wrong? could the one i got is malfunctioned ??
i tryed videos with different sizes and non-HD.
Movie size 1280[HD], 1280, and 640 all came out bad on the computer
while movie size 320 was fine, nothing was wrong(just wasnt good quality0

What Shall i do?

If you're watching the video on the computer while it's hooked up to the camera, it's probably a data bottleneck from the camera to the computer.

You'll want to download the video to the computer first and view it on the computer that way.

I transferred the Video's to the Desktop on my computer and disconnected the camera from the computer, and still the video freezes every 4 seconds or so.

what i noticed was, if i converted the file from MPEG-4 to AVI and viewed the video that way, there was no lagging of video or anything.
But that's to much of a hassle and each video takes about 5-10 minutes.

would this be a problem with my computer or the new camera?

Mine has lag also. I havnt tried changing the file type yet but the camera plays the video fine on the LCD. I'm running XP sp3 and downloaded the latest version of quicktime, no help. If the video plays on the TV fine it's obviously a PC/video player type issue.
K-Lite Codec Pack download may also help as its supposed to work with mpeg 4. I'll update when I figure this out. Samsung support was useless in advising on what type of video player to use, other than telling me to make sure I had the latest version of quicktime

Samsung sl720 video skipping/chopopy

My experience with 2 PC's using Windows XP SP2 on one and SP3 on the other watching video off this camera, regardless of resolution settings,was choppy. The Camera LCD was not choppy when watching it which told me it was the PC. Those of you with XP trying to use Quicktime having this issue may want to download K-lite codec pack full, there's many websites to go to. The user manual found online also says to try it. This cleared the choppy video, and now we can finally enjoy the camera!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
